|I just heard a rumor that a cyclist was killed 11/11/2002 on Highland's Ranch parkway. I can't find anything on local news channel or newspaper web sites, and am wondering if anyone has any information.|

|Horrible, horrible news.
For those who know, HR Pkwy (to my knowledge) has an ample bike lane. Any loss is horrible, this is absurd.
|Hmmm, SUV driver again. (nm)||Spunout|

|No way the cyclist might have done something stoopid? Something I see it all the time.|

|The guy hasn't been proven guilty ... I read that a) it's horrible that a life has been lost and b) the frequency of these things happening when an SUV is involved is rather high.|

|Maybe the percentage of accidents involving SUVs is high, because the percentage of SUVs on the road is high?
Wait for the facts before assigning blame.

|there's 6 lanes for traffic and a good bike lane in both directions. It's not usually very busy, though most drivers significantly exceed the supposed 45mph limit. Always thought that was one of the safer roads.. hum.|| |
